Than those 17,000 sent since February 18th, 2009 are Imaginary?
Fuck me. Are you solid?

The caption reads 'Can anybody name a U.S president that has NOT sent troops to war'. Meaning starting hostilities. Obama didn't start the hostilities, he's just carrying on where Bush left off.

Which means Mr Obama had no choice but to follow on the decidedly alcohol and cocaine influenced steps of Dubious Dubya and send more backup. It can't be the easiest of tasks following on from such a total fucknut, can it?

Ahh thats the only definition of send? So you would then say LBJ, Nixon didnt send troops to Vietnam as JFK started it?

Apparently the thread starter doesnt agree with your definition.
